"Time to rest and enjoy some relaxation."
When I think of Oakland, I think of trains on streets, great food, and water. Moving a little north of the bay is something a little different. Lake Merritt, to me, seems oddly out of place this close to the hard flowing water of the San Francisco Bay. That's not a bad thing. As you drive along Bellevue you'll come across Lakeside Park. It's a great place for a picnic and quiet change from the energy that I find in the shopping districts of Oakland. A great place to take the family and a nice spot to just sit and relax for a while.
